As we are now self-isolating or WFH, we have more time to invest in self-care. Here’s all you need to know about how to look after your lovely locks and maintain hair health with insider tips and product recommendations by Lynnette Chasmer, Bridal Hairstylist.
[Sarah Sian] How often should you wash your hair?
[Lynnette Chasmer] The build-up of natural oils protect the hair so you should try not to wash your hair every day. This is the perfect time to try to leave washing a little longer, though right now I love nothing better than diving under the shower every morning, you can however just run some conditioner through if getting your hair wet, and wash it every other day or leave for longer if you’d rather
[SS] What are your favourite hair care products and why?
[LC] I currently love the Maria Nila range of hair products as they are vegan and smell great too, I’m trying new products as only want to use cruelty-free and vegan. I’m amazed how many products are still out there that test on animals.
[SS] What tips and products do you recommend for dry and damaged hair?
[LC] I love Aussie 3 Minute Miracle for a deep condition, wash hair then towel dry before applying a generous amount, wrap hair in a towel or shower cap and leave for 3 minutes (I tend to leave it for 20!) making it super soft!
[SS] How often should you get your hair trimmed?
[LC] I recommended getting your hair trimmed every 6-8 weeks to help maintain better hair health.
[SS] What tips can you give to someone who wants to grow their hair?
[LC] Look after your hair, use the correct shampoo for your hair type and always use conditioner. Have a light trim every 8 weeks to remove any split ends keeping hair healthy and tidy. Once the hair is split it cannot be repaired leaving hair damaged. Eat a healthy diet too, this makes a big difference to your hair condition, so lots of nice fruit and veg, to help give your hair shine. You are what you eat!
